Converting user inputs to enum constants

Hi everyone,

I am creating a dictionary/vocab program and having users input the word, the definition, and the part of speech, but I would like the part of speech to be an enum constant. I have a PartOfSpeech enum with the NOUN, VERB, ADJECTIVE, and ADVERB values, and would like to have the user input the part of speech as an abbreviation (n/v/adj/adv). What is the best way to take the user input as an abbreviation and convert that into an enum constant? Thanks.
